    4px corner radius buttons. Everywhere. However I feel people might reduce that to 3px for the coming year.

    I'd go as far to say buttons in general. Buttons have been a big trend in 2016, you can't visit a site this year without seeing a button now.

    Next year, I'm confident buttons will continue to amaze visitors in 2017.

    Scrollbars are better than racism.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. What I noticed from the reply to this thread is I need to give more importance to Buttons, graphics, and I think color combination also need to be looked after.

    Colour combinations were known even to the ancient Romans*. Those are the colour combinations we recognise as combinations rather than Tibetan maroon and green and crimson or Mexican style red green purple brown blue yellow pink like some kind of wedding festival where everyone tries to wear the outfit which most offends human sensibilities.

    Europeans have different preferences. My prediction for 2017 is black and white, combined with grey. Thin yellow frames around monochrome images are permissible. In the age of Trump, no-one can afford to let the use of colour betray their gay lefty remainer affiliation.

    Trends change very frequently, it come and go. Some of them stay for years and others don't fit in the market. A trend might be just entering one market, while it’s in full bloom on another market and fading in a third. As a graphic designer we need to pay close attention to the changing trends of Graphic design. So, some of the major graphic design trends that we can expect to see in 2016.Check this articles.Why You Need to Aware Graphic Design Trends 2016

    1. Create a Habit Loop

    Microinteractions are the key components of habit loops. As a refresher from Interaction Design Best Practices, habit loops work like this:

    Cue (the microinteraction) — Trigger that initiates action
    Routine — Familiar user action
    Reward — Reason for completing action


    As shown in our UXPin prototype above, Facebook’s red box and whitened icon (cue) indicate there’s a message, which makes the user click the icon (routine) to chat with their friend (reward). After awhile, users automatically click when they see the red box/white icon and a habit forms.

    The stronger the reward, the more stronger the habit becomes.
    2. Design for Repeated Use

    Because they’re integral in habit loops, design them with staying power. What’s cute the first couple of times may become old or annoying after a hundred times.
    3. String Together with a Theme

    Connect your microinteractions with similarities, such as a single color or type of animation. Consistency increases recognition and strengthens brand identity, like The New York Times using their own logo as a loading animation.
